The New Man

Wed 14 June 2017

London-based fiction director Josh Appignanesi (The Infidel, Song of Songs) turns the camera on himself and his wife, Devorah, as they undergo the ordeal of becoming parents. Faced with fatherhood, Josh spirals comically into an envious career funk. Their relationship is tested to the brink as they confront birth, death, love and loss all at once. An entertaining and moving documentary about becoming a parent... and how to reconceive yourself.

“Lovely, personal and abjectly honest… Very funny and poignant.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★
"Candid introspection and self-interrogation... profound moving." Wendy Ide, Observer ★★★★
"Very, very moving and revealing.. told with great honesty and love" Mark Kermode, BBC5 Wittertainment, Top 5 Pick
